1) When those manifestos were written, the criminal activity had not all come to light. Labour have a 'leaver' as leader, the Tories could not afford not to be seen to implement Brexit or their party would have fallen apart. The actions of our two main parties do not legitimise the breaking of electoral rules, blatant lying by campaigners, or the disenfranchisement of some of the people most affected. 2) What's that got to do with it? Was that illegal? 3) Not in the slightest. The responsible members of the establishment don't want to make such a huge change to the country, that all predictions say will be detrimental to some degree (depending what might be finally agreed), based on an illegal vote, without allowing the people to say whether or not they are sure they want what is actually on offer, as opposed to the unicorns that were promised. Don't you feel a little uncomfortable at politicians and others wanting to force through Brexit - even advocating for a hugely damaging 'no-deal' - when polling indicates that this may no longer be what the majority of the population want?
